New for 2014! With a 975 cubic inch capacity and an integrated 70 ounce Antidote Reservoir, the simply-styled and versatile CamelBak Arete 18 can be used as a reservoir sleeve in a larger pack or as a hydration daypack all its own..
With an Air Mesh harness that offers breathable comfort, the Arete 18 is light enough to not need a waistbelt, allowing you to travel fast and light with just hydration and your essentials in tow. If you’re planning a longer trek, simply turn the Arete 18 inside out and it converts into a reservoir sleeve that can be slipped into your larger hydration-compatible backpack.
A separate insulated compartment in the Arete 18 pack houses a 70 oz Antidote Reservoir and ensures that its contents remain cool. A zippered external entry grants direct access to the reservoir. The innovative reservoir includes an integrated leak-proof drinking tube, CamelBak's patented Big Bite Valve and the Quick Link system. The reservoir’s wide mouth is easily accessed by a large, grip-friendly, quick-seal cap making refilling the reservoir simple and efficient. Center baffling and a low-profile design grant the Antidote Reservoir streamlined stability inside a pack. An anti-microbial treatment fights bacteria build-up inside the reservoir and keeps water tasting fresh and clean.
With a minimalist overall design, the CamelBak Arete 18 features two compression straps and mesh exterior pockets on the body of the pack, which is available in your choice of color options.
